    On the leadership style question I talked about him being paternalistic because he cared for his employee and was a father-like figure as he taught her to be like him. Is this wrong?
    i think it could of been either paternalistic or democratic

    paternalistic would suggest he is mainly an autocratic leader ( shares similar styles ) so he doesnt delegate, doesnt let his staff take decisions however Reena was allowed to do this and so democratic would be a more suitable description. But I must admit, this question was quite difficult as it could have been laissez faire, democratic or paternalistic, so aslong as your reasons are clear, then I dont think there should be a problem.

    Yeah if you think about it it - if you completely smash one of the exams in this subject you can get an A prior the other one is a C

    Am not sure how ums works with edexcel but they deffo will increase per marks so its possible

    i dont think ive done too bad today , but hope for the best and yeah u do use that a lot lol

    Yeah I get where you're coming from, thanks I also thought some other questions were difficult such as the multiple choice question that included increase in demand in the UK and internationally but input due to customer needs being met and the last multiple choice question threw me a bit and the government spending question.

    I put Lassiez Faire mangerment because she did make independent decisions even though she worked close to Matt. The other 3 leaderships where that Matt would me the final decisions, not reena but would consult her therefore I wrote Lassiez Faire as she made independent decisions?

    ( did exam last year got B wanting an A- think I got around 50? Even though I missed last goverment and 1 question on 4 marker- tbh it was HARDER THEN LAST YEAR so grades mark I think will be lower tbh so like 47/46 for A! I hope so that's what I need XD ) honestly don't know how I did though tbh matched what most ppl have said on here on sec A

    I did this paper and found it very peculiar!

    I have to say, Section A was hard. Not hard in the sense that it was impossible to do, but I have done every single past paper for section A and I would personally rate what I did today being the hardest paper for section A. Can't remember order, but I got the following:
    1) Market orientation
    2) An Ethical Stance
    3) Retained Profit
    4) More tourists visiting India
    5) Operating Profit in the previous three months was 290.56million Euros (Hardest question of the lot, took a lucky guess and wrote down definition to hopefully get 2 marks)
    6) Guaranteed Operating profit
    7) Consumer wants met
    8) Margin of safety zero

    Section B, on the other hand, was easier than section A in my opinion. All of the relevant information for each question was compiled into different subsections in small paragraphs, allowing myself to spot the relevant text and apply it. Unfortunately, however, I have to agree with most of you and say the timing is extremely harsh. I completed all of section A but did not manage to get to the last question (6 marks) on government spending in section B, however, I did put a definition in for government spending which would of hopefully awarded me 1 mark

    For the leadership one many people are mentioning that he is democratic. I personally feel he was more paternalistic due to the fact it mentioned she was involved in 'smaller decision making.' It also didn't refer much to consultation with employee (Reena) which is why I felt it was more paternalistic: acting as father-like figure, allowing her to make decisions but at the end of the day all big decisions go to him.

    I know grade boundaries vary, but I am hoping they will be lower this year (aren't we all). Hope all you guys did well!

    decrease in gov spending it was

    Link is that - if goverment decreases spending teachers and public servant will have less disposable income so demand for provide will fall

    unemployment benefits people - etc

    the multiplier effect etc

    but yeah it was a hard questions man

    Ohh thats good
    And Well, I think I lost around 16-20 marks for looking at the wrong time LOL.
    So according to last years boundaries, I still probably just about got an A?
    however, this year may be higher, so im thinking I got a B tbh. Not bad, but hoping for the best.
    Ima go all out on unit 2, hoping to get an A...

    I wrote about the lack of spending in the area he trades in and therefore may become unattractive to shop at which may make demand fall and I put about government grants being less or something. I thought this was hard
